In this activity each week a different student will get to “shine” and be the Wonder for the week.
Star of the Week does not just have to be for the younger grades. Older students enjoy being the highlight of the week as well. I find that Star or Wonder of the Week helps boost self-confidence, and it makes it easier for students to talk in front of their class.
In this 14 page packet you will find simple, non-time consuming ways that I have used to incorporate “Wonder of the Week” into my 3rd and 5th grade classrooms. I feel that these activities could work with students from grades 2-5.
Four pages provide instructions, ideas, and examples. Ten pages of the packet include multiple choice question cards with pictures that help you and the class to get to know one another in a fun Friday Wonder of the Week game. There is a total of 54 question cards!
I hope that you enjoy!
